If you are trying to create a subdirectory using the domain (sub domain) I believe you will run into a character limitation as the directory name is too long

This sounds like a permissions issues - I would double check that the folder has read/write permissions.

 

Also what error are you getting - can you post a screen capture of the file manager to show us where the issue is

Ok so I see your public_html - you have a WordPress site there and i see your subfolder kkpkonlineregistraiton with another wordpress site

 

So where are you not able to create the subfolder and what if any error message do you get when trying to add it

Do you mean I WordPress when you install the theme it isn’t working???

If that is the case look in settings / media and see if there is a path set there

If there is no path in Settings -> Media

 

Then in the cPanel file manager make sure wp-content and theme both have 755 for the permissions

If you don't see the 755 for the permissions when you are in the cPanel file manager that 100% could cause the issue of not being able to upload

What you can do is click on the folder and then click permissions

Then set the settings as below

You should then be good to go

Were you able to see the screen captures I included - you do the permissions in cPanel - File manager

 

The last screen capture show which check boxes to create 755

From the last screen capture you posted - It looks like the wp-content/themes directory is missing - so therefore when you go to upload it is failing - WordPress can create the folders within themes (or plugins) but the themes (and plugins) need to be there to start with

In file manager in the wp-content folder you need to click the +Folder button in the toolbar and add a folder for themes

 

Then you should be able to do the upload of the theme via the admin
